Mwanaidi S. Maajar (Amb. Maajar), of Ambassador of the United Republic of Tanzania to the United States of America, was greeted by an enthusiastic and diverse group of business leaders, government administrators, executives, and attorneys from the Greater Milwaukee area. All who attended were anxious to learn more about the investment and trade opportunities in Tanzania, and how Milwaukee residents might tap into Tanzania’s business potential.
The event was sponsored by the World Trade Center of Wisconsin and was held at the AO Smith Technology Center on Milwaukee’s northwest-side.
Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa with a rich history and diverse blend of cultures. Amb. Maajar remarked on the consistency of her country’s peaceful and stable democracy. The Ambassador further explained that “Tanzania is rich in natural resources and natural wonders, including world-renowned tourist attractions; prime geographical location; abundant arable land; a skilled labor force; warm, friendly people; and assurance of safety.” According to the World Bank, “Tanzania is becoming one of the best performers in Sub Saharan Africa…in recent years growth in gross domestic product (GDP) averaged between 5 and 7 percent.” Ultimately, there is huge potential for profitable investment for small and large US corporations in tourism, energy, agriculture, infrastructure, transportation, and mining.
Milwaukee’s business leaders are invited to visit the great continent of Africa and explore Tanzania’s business investment opportunities by participating in the second annual VIP safari, Discover Tanzania, scheduled in June 22 – July 3, 2012. Participants will receive a personal journey with Amb. Maajar in the enjoyment of Tanzania’s natural and cultural attractions as well as explore Tanzania’s business sectors.
